He could grab only one thing and one thing only and run out and everything else is lost. Then you realize, Allah azza wa jal says mean to Memphis some a C Furby como la orotava either here to move

00:00:16--> 00:00:22

I mean to Memphis sama your si la Aleikum Halsey Seba to Allah Munna que fena. The

00:00:24--> 00:00:28

ISs Do you feel secure with the one who is above

00:00:29--> 00:00:32

that he will not cause the earth to crack beneath you,

00:00:34--> 00:00:35

and shake violently?

00:00:37--> 00:00:53

And previous to that I Allah was saying that he had made this earth so easy for you to walk on. But then he says, Do you feel secure with him that he's not going to make this more secure? Or things crack and crumble and shake beneath you?

00:00:55--> 00:01:03

Or do you feel secure with the one who is above that he wants not send upon you punishment from the sky?

00:01:04--> 00:01:11

Then you will know how severe my warning is, Allah says, then you will understand that what I'm saying

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

is serious when you see that punishment. So do you feel secure?

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

And if the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam rasool Allah He did not feel secure. How could we?

00:01:28--> 00:01:34

Because this answers the question of how a person thinking that he is so righteous that this could never happen.

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

I surely ALLAH who

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

cannot assume Allah He is sal Allahu Allah. He was a llama either or al Haman, Talia Raju.

00:01:47--> 00:02:05

She said that when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam he would do and he was see clouds with rain carrying rain in them but had not rained yet. His face would change and he would become restless, goes inside the house outside the house sits stands up restless.

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

When it rains,

00:02:09--> 00:02:35

then he would experience relief. And that repeats. So she asked him all the Allahu Anhu Why does this happen? Oh prophet of Allah. Why does this happen? Why do you react this way? Karla wanna you? Amino ne ne Hakuna comarca LUFA Mara, who out here though Mustafi Oh dear to him? Is this how do I feel secure that this could be like those in the Quran who said that when they saw these clouds coming? They said Jeez, this is just simply rain.

00:02:36--> 00:02:45

That Allah says what but who am I studying to be here at Humphrey here other Boone le? No, this is a wind that is bringing great punishment.

00:02:46--> 00:02:55

So if Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was alive next to the Companions, who are the best of Muslims, when he sees something that could be

00:02:56--> 00:03:06

a punishment for Allah azza wa jal, he will be so afraid that maybe because of our sins, we are about to be punished. He is that sensitive, he is that fearful?

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

Why would we not react in the same way?

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

So he understood,

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

and he has Salatu was Salam, Allah's might, and Allah has power,

00:03:20--> 00:03:23

and our fallibility our mistakes,

00:03:25--> 00:03:31

and also understand our weakness. And the impermanence of this life, that's another lesson.

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

That is if you're going to learn, learn the impermanence of this life

00:03:39--> 00:03:45

that we collect, and we gather, and we think that we're going to live and we think that our life is going to be very long.

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

And you plan ahead for five and 10 and 20, and 50 years ahead.

00:03:51--> 00:04:07

And again, because of all the power you have you feeling that you have established yourself on this earth, and then an earthquake comes, or a flood, or what have you, in in a sudden, in a minute, you lose all of it.

00:04:09--> 00:04:18

You lose everything that you've ever collected, you lose all the dreams that you've ever had. You may lose all the loved ones that you have in a minute you lose all of it.

00:04:20--> 00:04:26

And what does that tell you about the dunya and your connection to it if you could lose all of it in a minute?

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

Should you believe that you are permanent in it?

00:04:32--> 00:04:51

Or should you reexamine all of your connections on Earth? In terms of how pleasing and displeasing they are to Allah azza wa jal and how attached you are to them. Is this your car? And is this your house? And are these your clothes and Is this your shop and Is this your food?

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

Or is it that in a minute or an hour from now they could belong to your heirs and you have none of that? Imagine someone who

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

In an earthquake he could you had to flee his house, he could grab only one thing and one thing only, and run out and everything else is lost, then you realize that what you have what you value of this life is not valuable, because it doesn't stay. And the only thing that is valuable is the thing that stays with you. And the only thing that stays with you is the aroma of Allah Zoda

00:05:29--> 00:05:48

and your iman and your good deeds. So if you attach yourself to the dunya you're attaching itself yourself to something that will betray you and leave you. If you attach yourself to Allah azza wa jal, then Allah is always in all places in all times with you subhanho wa taala, you could never lose him.

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

If you deposit money for the earth era in terms of sadaqa

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

and zakah,

00:05:57--> 00:06:02

you will never lose it. If you save up this money in the dunya and hoard it

00:06:03--> 00:06:05

then you are going to lose it.

00:06:06--> 00:06:19

So these events should again re educate us so that we understand that nothing stays except Allah azza wa jal and what is for his for his sake. So hold on to what matters

00:06:21--> 00:06:25

and seek Allah's refuge and compensation for everything else.

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

Of the lessons also that we learn

00:06:31--> 00:06:36

is that these are all warnings from him. Subhanahu wa Taala
